The Orthodox Christian community in Malaysia was given a dozen Jordanville prayer books by Father Seraphim Holland, a priest at St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in McKinney, Texas. Our community really needed these prayer books, as quite a few of our members did not have any, and understandably they are hard to obtain in Malaysia.
These prayer books were given in the name of Father Seraphim’s son, Daniel Holland, who reposed on the Sunday of All Saints, June 11, 2017 at the age of 20. It is requested that all the Malaysian Orthodox Christians who receive these prayer books remember to pray for Daniel Holland.
Father Seraphim has helpfully provided a webpage with instructions on how to pray for the dead. Father Seraphim’s homily at his son’s funeral is also very instructive in explaining why and how we Orthodox Christians pray for the dead. Text and audio is available at the Ancient Faith Ministries Website .
May his memory be eternal.
